    I have been working at Wireless Lifestyle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good incentives both to make aditional money as well as great prizes, health benefits, job security (as long as you perform well), advancement oppertunity, team oriented atmosphere.

    Cons

    As store manager work life balance is not very respected. Cannot take 2 days in a row off unless taking vacations. Can't take Mondays, Fridays or Saturdays off (unless taking vacation). You never get any national holidays off because they are BIG selling days because the everyone else has the day off. Holiday season is horrible. The store will close early the night before Thanksgiving. The store will be closed for Thanksgiving day and reopen at 8am the next morning. From through Christmas you will have to work longer shifts and 6 days a week because of holiday hours. The work life balance is really mynonly compliant.

    Advice to Management

    Make work life balance a priority.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Geneva, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wireless Lifestyle (Geneva, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Seen a job post on Indeed. I applied online and within a week I received a call from a corporate recruiter. A brief interview with her on the phone. Then was sent to meet the District Manager in person. After a few days I was going to meet a Regional Manager but that person was probably unavailable and I was then sent on the 3rd interview with another District Manager. That interview lasted no more then ten minutes and was pointless to travel for a face to face. I received a call from the corporate recruiter or HR with a job offer few days later. The whole process took no more then two weeks or less. They will not negotiate pay because all Store Manager's make the same hourly wage at $13.33 and your told you can make more money through the commission structure of the stores sales and so forth. To bad I was so gullible to take the job offer and left a $50,000.00 a year job for this company. Don't make the same mistake that I did and just keep on moving don't think twice about this company. You will learn to hate it your first day on the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly standard interview questions like everyone else. With of course sales questions thrown in. They don't really talk about the money until the end which was kind of sketchy because it's mostly commission structured overall. They like to pull you in and when you sound very interested is when they sell you on how much commission you can make. It's a selling technique that a salesman does. Your better off selling cars then cell phones!!   Answer Question
